Timeless Tropical Birthday.

Timeless Tropical Birthday.

Today I have a quick card to share with you using the Timeless Tropical stamp set and coordinating dies. I found inspiration for this card from Wendy Lee at CreativeLee Yours.

To make this project you will need:

  • Very Vanilla Thick card base – 14.9cm x 21cm
  • Terracotta Tile 6×6 DSP – 8.5cm x 12.9cm
  • Soft Suede card stock – 8cm x 12.4cm
  • Crumb Cake cardstock – 7.5cm x 4.5cm
  • Braided Linen Trim – 10cm

Sponge the edges of the Terracotta Tile DSP piece using sponge Terracotta Tile ink and a Sponge Dauber.

Emboss the Soft Suede piece of cardstock using the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder. TIP: Emboss the piece in portrait orientation, and then a second time in landscape orientation for a cross-hatch design.

Adhere the Soft Suede piece to the Terracotta Tile DSP piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Seal.

Adhere this to the Very Vanilla Thick card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Seal.

Die cut two of the pineapple tops in Pear Pizzazz. Use a Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend to add colour to the embossed lines. Curl the edges with a Bone Folder, and fold back the die cut triangles.

Adhere these two die cut pieces to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Seal. TIP: Ensure they are positioned in the bottom 2/3’s of the card front.

Die cut the piece of Crumb Cake using the third up from smallest rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso onto the center of the Crumb Cake die cut piece.

Frey the length of Braided Linen Trim by pulling the edges apart. Adhere this to the bottom left-hand corner of the sentiment piece using Tear & Tape or Seal+.

Adhere the sentiment piece on top of the pineapple tops using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Die cut the three small flowers in Terracotta Tile. Use a sponge dauber to sponge the flowers with Terracotta Tile ink. Adhere the small flowers to the sentiment piece using Glue Dots.

Finally, adhere Champagne Rhinestone Basic Pearls to the centers of the small flowers.

Ornate Thanks Card.

Ornate Thanks Card.

Today I have a quick yet effective card to share with you. Some extra touches like an embossing folder and a heat embossed sentiment are great ways to add some wow factor to any card design. I hope you enjoy this tutorial. You’ll find the link to the YouTube video below.

To complete this project you will need:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock – 14.9cm x 21cm
  • Mint Macaron cardstock – 14.4cm x 5cm
  • Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper – 14.4cm x 7.5cm
  • Basic Black cardstock – 8cm x 5cm
  • Braided Linen Trim – 25cm

Begin by embossing the piece of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the Whisper White Thick cardbase using Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Keep an even border around the top, left-hand side, and the bottom.

Use the scalloped edge die from the Ornate Borders Dies to cut the left-hand side of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP. Adhere this to the Whisper White Thick cardbase so that it overlaps the Mint Macaron layer using Seal or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Keep an even border around the top, right-hand side, and the bottom.

Die cut the piece of Basic Black cardstock using the third up from smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Stamp the sentiment ‘Thanks’ and ‘from all of us’ from the Ornate Thanks stamp set using VersaMark ink into the center of the die cut Basic Black piece. Cover this with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and set using the Heal Tool.

On the reverse of the sentiment piece, adhere two strips of Seal+ or Tear & Tape. Zig zag a length of Braided Linen Trim to these strips. Adhere the sentiment piece to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

NOTE: This is different to the ribbon picture. I made my sample in the YouTube video before I had realised that the ribbon I had used was retired! Oops… :).

To finish off the card, place three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the card front, making a triangle.

Forever Blossoms Mini Pizza Box.

Forever Blossoms Mini Pizza Box.

Today I have a gorgeous gift box to share with you. I’ve dressed up the Mini Pizza Boxes with the Forever Blossoms stamp set to make a soft, feminine gift box. Place some yummy chocolates or a few tea pouches inside and it makes a lovely gift.

To make this project you will need:

  • Mini Pizza Box
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • Champagne Foil
  • Sponge Brayer
  • Sponge Dauber

Start by adding Flirty Flamingo ink to the Mini Pizza Box using the Sponge Brayer. Do this BEFORE folding on any of the scored lines. You can add as much or as little ink as you like, and you can make it as even or rough a coating as you please. I stayed light on the ink, and wasn’t too fussy about having a even coating.

Fold the Mini Pizza Box on the scored lines.

Stamp the large flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento ink. Stamp the individual and the two leaf stamp three times each.

Sponge the centers of the flowers with Flirty Flamingo and Cherry Cobbler using the sponge daubers. Sponge the leaves with Pear Pizzazz, and add detail using the Light Old Olive Blends.

NOTE: Take the Flirty Flamingo sponging out into the petals a little bit, and keep the Cherry Cobbler sponging just in the center of the flower.

Die cut the flowers and place to the side.

Using the detailed shapes from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies cut the third die up from the smallest in Champagne Foil and the second die up from smallest in Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of the Whisper White piece. Ink up the flower bud image using Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz ink pads or markers. Stamp this off twice, and then stamp over top of the sentiment.

Adhere this piece to the Champagne Foil piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a length of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon around the Mini Pizza Box and tie a large bow in the right-hand side of the lid.

Adhere the large flower to the lid on the left-hand side using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Be sure to place the Dimensionals where they will sit either side of the ribbon.

Adhere the sentiment piece in the center of the lid using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Again, be mindful of placement for the Dimensionals.

Finally, adhere the individual flowers to the sentiment piece using Glue Dots, and tuck the two-leaf images underneath the sentiment piece using Glue Dots.
